Who we are

About us

Landmark Homes was created by Paul and Debbie Clarke nearly 40 years ago.

The two had a passion for building beautiful, high-quality homes that New Zealanders love to live in. Their mission is to take the hard work out of the building process and turn dreams into reality.

“We’re not just about putting some nuts and bolts together; we’re about creating a sense of home.”

Our History

After starting out with their own building company in the early ‘80s, the Clarkes began creating their own engineered designs. Their vision was to offer “something more exciting” than the average home: a home that made creative use of space but was also beautiful to live in.  

“One of the things that’s most important to us is that our homes look good, and people feel a sense of pride to be living in them. People walked into our first showhomes and they loved them; they feel like they wanted to live there.” “We’re not just about putting some nuts and bolts together; we’re about creating a sense of home.”

As demand for their designs grew, Landmark Homes Tauranga expanded into a national operation. The next step was to recruit committed franchisees, which has helped grow Landmark Homes what it is today.

“Our designs were wanted all over New Zealand, from the Coromandel down to Wanaka. By the end of 2005 we had the systems in place to make our company work more efficiently, and we began opening franchises outside of Tauranga.” says Debbie.

Landmark Homes now has 15 franchisees across the country and have helped dozens of Kiwis build their dream homes.

Why Landmark Homes?

“Don’t build a house, build a Landmark” is our founding principle. At Landmark, we listen to what’s important to you and we express that through our design. We offer our clients the freedom to choose a Ready to Build design they can adapt to their needs, or to use our unique Design and Build service that offers complete design flexibility. We believe in getting it right the first time, every time. This takes persistence and commitment. We have proven our commitment to building beautiful, high quality homes throughout New Zealand for nearly 40 years.

We delight our new homeowners

Our franchise home builders believe in making our clients’ dreams come true. Much of our business comes from previous clients who have happily recommended us. If you’d like to talk to one of them about their experience, we’d love to put you in touch. See our Testimonials from homeowners who are now living in their Landmark homes.

Adaptation and flexibility to meet your needs

Our Ready to Build designs are perfect for clients who want to start with a plan that they can adapt to their needs. Extend the deck? Easy. Swap the master bedroom location to maximise the view? Of course. The Ready to Build option floor plan configurations have been successful in dozens of homes. Our unique Design and Build system offers the ultimate flexibility. It’s the home equivalent of a handcrafted Rolls Royce. Our designers take creative inspiration directly from your wants and needs, and combine it with the natural advantages of your chosen site. They then add all the design elements to make your home a Landmark. This is what we mean when we say, ‘Don’t build a house, build a Landmark.’
